7:01 am
going for gold yet again. and good morning, america. all kinds of excitement for michael phelps. what about that, the first u.s. male swimmer to make it into not one, two, three, four, but five olympics. >> could be adding to his already 18 olympic gold medal count. don't forget, missy franklin, after a tough start, she sealed her place on the olympic team. boy, remember her in 2012? we'll much more on that on your big board. first that breaking news about isis. officials report the massive u.s. air strikes targeting terrorist groups in iraq killed more than 250 isis fighters. martha raddatz has the latest from washington. >> reporter: that is a striking number. if that 250 figure holds, this would be one of the largest, deadliest hits on isis fighters
7:02 am
in recent memory. we were in that area just over a month ago. this is a group that's normally scattered throughout population centers in iraq, does not travel in large formations, but the pictures out of iraq overnight and this morning, graphic pictures show how intense the attacks on isis have been with the iraqis now back in control of the major city of fluj gentleman. witnesses say there were hundreds of isis vehicles streaming out of fallujah which is when the u.s. air strikes zeros in on the fighters. aid workers tried to deliver food to civilians who have fled fallujah say air strikes came dangerously close to them. they had to hide as the vehicles passed with u.s. fighter jets in hot pursuit. and while the air strikes were not in direct response to the istanbul attack, as isis loses more ground, the group seems to resort to attacks outside the
7:03 am
borders. george? >> that is the pattern we've seen. thanks very much. to the latest on the terror attack in turkey overnight, officials conducting raid as we learn new details about that deadly blast at the airport. abc's terry moran is on the scene and has the latest for us. >> reporter: istanbul is a shaken city today, security is being intensified around the city and officials are now disclosing they believe the attackers here at the airport were russian and central asian as we are learning more about what they did here. this morning authorities in istanbul are cracking down. 16 raid throughout the city, targeting isis, and 13 people are now under arrest. this as we learn new details about that horrific attack on the city's airport tuesday, the coordinated massacre killing 42 people and wounding 239 others. we're seeing these newly released images of the suspected attackers. this man in a baseball cap with
7:04 am
an alleged accomplice p officials say the three pulled up in a taxi just before 10:00 p.m. tuesday. they got out of a taxi here at the front of the airport where the first layer of security is. they were spotted and scattered. one heading down that way, opening fire, detonating his explosive. another making it into the terminal there. you can see the busted windows. blew himself up there. the third going downstairs where people were waiting for rides and detonating there. they used automatic weapons and unleashed a combination of deadly fire inside the airport. the attacks inside happened first. passengers fleeing in terror as the gunman opened fire. then an explosion, shaking tiles from the ceiling. >> just to see people screaming, running, tripping, police with guns drawn, and it quickly became clear that something else had happened. this wasn't a drill, this wasn't a hoax. >> reporter: but in the confusion there were acts of bravery. watch as this officer approaches one of the attackers, shooting him, the terrorist's gun sliding across the floor.
7:05 am
the officer comes closer, but then runs for cover as the terrorist on the ground fumbles and then detonates his suicide vest. this morning that officer is reportedly recovering in the hospital with a spleen injury from a gunshot wound. but the terror wasn't over. as people ran out of the airport, a third attacker was waiting, detonating his suicide vest near a line of taxis. you can see the force of the blast. funerals for the victims have begun. we are told that 94 people still remain in the hospital. cia chief john brennan is leading a core of officials who say the attacks looks like the word of isis and that isis could be planning a similar attack in the u.s. brian ross is here with more on what has officials so worried right now. >> reporter: good morning, george. while there still has been no claim of responsibility, u.s. officials this morning say the attackers left behind significant clues about who they were.
7:06 am
some of the most important clues are being discovered on that airport surveillance tape. counter-terrorism officials spotted the apparent confident demeanor of the suicide attackers, one wearing a winter coat on an 84-degree day to hide his suicide bomb. >> the fact that the attackers had a specific plan, they knew the places they wanted to be and acted in a coordinated fashion all indicate this was a well planned and orchestrated attack. >> reporter: the hallmarks of isis, amid what officials call increasing tempo of attacks on western targets. >> right now i am still very concerned that the is isil-generated engine of foreign terrorism outside of syria and iraq still has a lot of momentum that we cannot rest at all, we have to increase our efforts. >> reporter: u.s. officials hope the tragedy at the airport will lead turkey to increase its efforts. the country's border with syria
7:07 am
has been the principle gateway for recruits to travel in and out of isis training camps. in 2014 vice-president biden told an audience at harvard the turks new their border had become too porous. >> president erdogan said you were right, we let too many people through. >> reporter: 6,000 have turned the border into syria, many to join isis. this morning among u.s. officials there's unanimous agreement the attack in istanbul was from isis. >> real concern about this july 4th weekend. >> that's right. u.s. officials say the coordinated attack seen in istanbul is less likely here because it's much more difficult to form and maintain a cell in the u.s. the u.s. counter-terrorism squad are geering up for a long july 4th weekend. isis will earn ten times the
7:08 am
awards if they carry out attacks during the holy month. >> thanks very much. we're going to move on to the other big story, that extreme weather, a tornado tearing through the midwest, touching down in iowa. and storms spreading from arizona to north carolina. ginger is in washington, has all the details for us. good morning, ginger. >> good morning to you, robin and good morning everyone. on a picture perfect morning it was far from it in places like iowa. more than 122 severe storm reports. storm chasers closing in on that beast. thankfully no one injured that we know of. what i did want to show you was the really big issue in raleigh, north carolina. the picture you see, hundreds of people evacuated from the red hat amphitheater at the raleigh road show. lightning and damaging winds, too. look at the pictures coming out of there, wind gusts at 55-plus mile per hour. a big cleanup effort as tens of
7:09 am
thousands still without power. of course, that's what happened, but what's going to happen when you care about it most, right here is your travel forecast. the wet spot is going to be with that monsoon flow in parts of the west, the southwest, colorado and denver included. a whole lot more coming up. for now we'll head back to robin and george. >> she's there for a reason and she'll explain that. the race for the white house. president obama going on what he called a rant against donald trump, as trump targets hillary over isis. tom llamas is here with the latest. good morning, tom. >> reporter: sharpening his attack on hillary clinton over the rise of isis. >> it started under her. it was a little group of people. it could have been wiped out quickly and effectively then. now it's a very large group of people, and it's only getting bigger. >> reporter: trump also using benghazi to show clinton is soft
7:10 am
an terror. now the nra launching this new ad showcasing veteran mark geist, a u.s. contractor who was in benghazi during the attack. >> hillary as president, no thanks. >> reporter: trump getting help from reporters like boston radio host howie carr going against senator elizabeth warren. >> i heard hillary clinton and elizabeth warren campaigning. you know elizabeth warren, right? wa, wa, wa. >> reporter: clinton said to get even more husband out on the campaign trail. president obama will campaign with her for the first time next tuesday, and already the president going after trump, saying he's no populist. >> they don't suddenly become a populist because they say something controversial in order to win votes. that's nativism. or xenophobia. or worse.
7:11 am
>> reporter: now, mitt romney back in the news saying yesterday his family did want him to run again but he didn't think it was right if there was a strong alternative in the republican party. he says he doesn't believe he could win if he enters the race. >> there's another story about a trump business enterprise, about the trump institute which is a real estate seminar. you see it right there. there are claims of fraud and plajerrism with that institute. >> the times reporting that the trump institute was accused of depth tif practices. unlike trump university, trump did not own trump institute but he did give his name. >> let's get more from matt dowd this morning. matt, let's start with president obama. he called it a rant yesterday about donald trump. it's not the first time. what about the political effect of this? is he actually persuading anybody with this or just firming up his base?
7:12 am
>> george, i think it's a two-edged sword with the president. one, it's a great asset for hillary clinton to have somebody that's now popular among the majority of the country to go after donald trump and raise concern, but it also reminds people that it is a continuation of the status quo for hillary clinton. if you want change, she's not the change candidate in the course of this. more problematic for donald trump is that he's in a 400-meter race in a pool where he is running the race, swimming the race, all by himself. i don't care if you're michael phelps. if you're against four, you can't win a race. he has to figure out a way to get more people involved in this against hillary clinton. >> more and more republicans are still questioning whether he's a viable candidate, including mitch mcconnell. we're seeing all kinds of polls. two national polls, nbc and fox around five or six points. quinnipiac, a two point race. how do voters make sense of
7:13 am
these differences? >> for our viewers, it's important to understand, if this is a six or seven-point race which i think it is a solid six or seven-point lead for hillary clinton, that means polls are going to range between one and two points or 10 or 11 points. it's going to fall in that range. i would recommend the viewers to watch the averages in the course of this and the average has gone from relatively even over the last month or so to a six or seven-point hillary clinton lead. that will change in the conventions and the debates but that's why you see these range of polls. >> matt, thanks very much. now to new details in the mystery surrounding egyptair flight 804, the flight from paris to cairo crashing last month killing all 66 people on board. investigators now say the wreckage an flight data recorder show signs of extreme heat and smoke just before the crash. joining us now is aviation consultant steve ganyard. hearing that, what does that
7:14 am
tell you? >> it doesn't tell us a lot, robin. unfortunately, it's a bit frustrating. we don't know much more today than we did a couple days ago. all this does is confirm what we knew before. there were indications of smoke, there was a fire on board, but what brought this airplane down is still a mystery. >> there is a piece of information that you find disturbing and could hinder the investigation and that is the recorder stopped recording before the crash. >> one of the things that the investigators confirmed yesterday was that the flight data recorder which is recording the parameters of what's going on on the airplane itself also stopped at 37,000 feet when the airplane was straight and level. so that suggests that something either catastrophic happened, but the last piece of information we're going to get is the cockpit voice reporters. what were the pilots saying and trying to fix. if that stopped at the same incident that the other
7:15 am
recorders stopped, we may not get the information we need and this still may be a difficult mystery to solve. >> we still don't know, mechanical failure or act of terror? >> we don't. either way it's something that's got to be addressed. >> thank you. there's another bombshell out of great bln. boris johnson has announced he will not run for prime minister. the question over who will lead great britain is one of the many uncertainties in stock markets. johnson said he doesn't believe he's the right man to unify the party going forward, all the leadership in flux right now. there was a scare in the air for roller coaster riders when the ride got stuck 100 feet off the round. cars were chained to the rail before rescue crews brought the riders down one at a time.
7:16 am
that took about an hour. everyone safe this morning. and the academy is making some news this morning, inviting the most diverse group of new members ever to joining its ranks, the announcement coming after this year's oscar's so white campaign. he may have missed out on an oscar nomination last year. but this morning beasts of no nation star idris elba leading the pack of more than 600 new members inducted into the academy of motion picture arts and sciences. 41% of the new membership class, people of color. that's up 3% from last year. other new members include captain america's chadwick boseman. >> i want to ask a second time -- >> as well as creed's michael b. jordan. >> show me how to do this. >> the academy came under fire this year for not nominating any
7:17 am
actors of color for the second year in a row. after the hashtag oscar's so white campaign went viral, the organization vowed to double the amount of women and minorities by 2020. this year's new female class includes emma watson. >> i've been away for two months. it's another world. and it gets better. >> america ferrera -- >> also that's it. >> and eva mendez. >> i do have friends, carter. >> some actors took to social media to celebrate. gabrielle union tweeting, huge honor and i cannot wait to vote. and annika noni rose sharing, i'd like to thank the academy for welcoming me. if all those invited accept membership the academy will have close to 8,000 members so that is a big change. they still need to continue working on that. the other thing of note was they're also changing voting rights. you're no longer allowed to vote for the oscar for the rest of
7:18 am
your life. you don't just get to do that. you can vote -- your status gets renewed every ten years. >> you have to cycle after ten years? >> there are a couple of exceptions. it's long and deep, if you're a winner, nominated. the point being, they're trying. the changes are afoot. >> they said they would be changes. >> and we're starting to see that happen. a lot of excitement. let's go back to ginger. she's got that monsoon in the this is the time of year it happens, now tucson has had it's third wettest june on record. damaging winds at 07 miles per hour. that's a look at the monsoon that's coming, one to three inches in the forecast. we want to get you your rainy cities brought to you by ysm --

7:30 am
we welcome you back to "gma." you're looking at u.s. air strikes targeting isis overnight. officials say they killed at least 250 fighters, as the search continues for answers in turkey after those deadly terrorist attacks. more than a dozen arrested in raids overnight there. right now, a huge twister tore through the u.s. now the south facing new monsoon threats. boris johnson, one of the leaders of the brexit campaign has announced he will not run for prime minister. michael phelps making history in the pool, becoming the first male swimmer to qualify for five olympics. so can he bring home another medal? we'll break it down with olympic champion summer sanders.
7:31 am
>> he was 15 in his first olympics back in 2000. >> he's really old at 31. >> exactly. i'm with you, lara, thank you. we begin this half-hour with a case that's raising questions did distracted driving and using social media behind the wheel. overnight a wisconsin mother accused of using facebook seconds before a deadly crash. she was acquitted of all charges. gio benitez is here with more on this. >> reporter: this has been called the case of the three angel. three little girls who did not survive that crash. the driver, mother to those girls, under the microscope. >> we, the jury, find the defendant, carrie jo, not guilty. >> reporter: overnight a wisconsin jury taking just two hours to acquit carrie jo millberg of causing the death of her 11-year-old daughter and two 5-year-old nieces when they say she lost control of her car while using her cell phone. >> semijust hit an suv. >> is there an injury. >> there has to be.
7:32 am
>> okay. >> there's nobody moving in the suv. >> reporter: in court prosecutors saying they found facebook messages on millberg's phone between her and a childhood friend about meeting for lunch. takes a lot to get my nervous, he wrote. millberg replying, i am too, kind of bad. prosecutors alleging that message was sent less than 30 seconds before the 2013 crash. an investigator also testifying he saw the messaging app open on her phone when it was found on the road several months later. >> it appeared something was written in the composition line, but i couldn't make out what it was. >> reporter: but millberg who lost all memory of the accident has long argued she lost control of the car because of slippery, snow-covered roads and unsafe tires, a point her attorney made during cross-examination. >> you can't rule out the fact that the fire was a cause? >> i cannot. >> reporter: the jury finding millberg not guilty of all charges. her sister, the mother of those
7:33 am
5-year-olds, telling us overnight, that she's relieved, she's breathing full breaths of air again and that she loves those three girls with every fiber of her body. >> joining us now abc news chief legal analyst dan abrams. it took the jury less than two hours. what do you make of the verdict? >> i think there are three reasons they came to this verdict. number one is the weather, the fact that they couldn't prove that it was the weather, that there was snow on the roads, that it was slippery. number two, prosecutors had trouble demonstrating beyond a reasonable doubt that she was using her facebook account at that time, at that place. that was another problem. number three and maybe the most important issue of all, i think the jurors felt sorry for her. one of the alternate jurors said hasn't she suffered enough. i think that may have been at the heart of this. these jurors looking at this and possibly thinking to themselves, my goodness, could that have ever happened to me? >> any missteps by the
7:34 am
prosecution here? >> look, if you do get a verdict in less than two hours you're going to look back and say what did we do wrong here. so they do have to think to themselves was this a case worth bringing? if they believed that beyond a reasonable doubt she was sitting there, having social conversations on facebook while driving with these three kids in the car, then, you know, there may have been a legitimate claim to bring this case, but i don't think there's any question considering how easy it seemed to have been for the jury that this was not a case that they were going to win with small strategy changes. >> as you said, it could be that the jury was sympathetic, but texting is a huge issue that we talked about. texting and driving, you see all the ads and i know when i'm on the road and i see somebody with their phone out, i just want to scream at them. is it against the law in every state, but it's not? >> 46 states it's against the law to be texting. 14 states have a hand-free cell phone laws. there's no question that around
7:35 am
the country state legislatures are grappling with this. don't forget it's not just that. it's also like a tv. >> it's distracting. >> exactly right. the goal is, have people focus on the driving. it can be anything from alcohol to a tv to texting. when you're driving you got to be focusing on the driving and that's the message that they're trying to send. >> last weekend when i was driving to connecticut i actually saw somebody with their laptop out driving watching a movie. >> come on. >> i could not believe that. >> and then they were on social media saying robin roberts just drove by me. >> they're glancing over. all right, dan, thanks so much. >> thanks. we're going to move on now to a 911 call that is raising questions about the sleeping aid ambien. one man called for help after taking a pill claiming he was in a plane crashed that never happened, and it's not the first time authorities have had to deal with hallucinations like
7:36 am
this. kendis gibson here with the story. >> this was fascinating. in fact, this 911 caller was so convinced that he was in a plane crash, vividly describing the crash scene, and it was all his imagination. the call came to 911 early in the morning, just outside seattle last month, a man claiming he just survived a plane crash and needed help. >> are you able to safely get out? >> no. i'm pinned in. >> reporter: the 75-year-old caller said he was in the plane with three other people, but they were unconscious. >> are you able to look out the window? are you able to see the wing from where you're at? >> no, i can't see anything. >> reporter: it's the stuff of nightmares, and this morning the caller tells abc affiliate komo that's basically what it was, all of it, a hallucination caused by the sleeping pill ambien. the man who didn't want to go on camera tells our affiliate he was at home the entire time.
7:37 am
others have claimed damaging side affects as well. in new jersey police arrested this woman who appeared drunk. it wasn't just alcohol. she had popped an ambien, gone to bed, and claims she had no memory getting behind the wheel. in texas, a woman who had mixed wine with ambien also ended up unknowingly on the road. a secure camera captures the horrific consequences as she runs over a family in their yard, severely injuring a toddler. the man who imagined the plane crash had just had surgery. it's unclear if he mixed other drugs and perhaps that caused the reaction. the drug's developer says it has a 20-year track record and is perfectly safe when taken as directed. so the elderly man says that he only took a half a pill because he couldn't sleep after his surgery. that said, doctors say this sort of disorientation can happen with the pill if the dosage is just too high. >> got to be careful. thanks very much. >> i enjoy watching you early in the morning. >> thank you so much. appreciate it. >> get my day started.
7:38 am
>> you need to get some sleep. >> you need to get some sleep. >> touche. coming up, we're going to tell you what pepsi is putting back in their drink after a public outcry. plus miss teen usa, is the swimsuit competition a thing of the past. and michael phelps, the man of the hour, swimming into the record books, making olympic history again. our experts are standing by and we'll be back in two minutes. every part of you is strong. time to bring... that strength to your tooth enamel. new colgate enamel health mineral repair toothpaste. strengthens weakened
7:39 am
enamel 4x better. so smile.. with strength. with new colgate enamel health mineral repair.
7:40 am
i'm a big girl and big boy this time. we welcome you to the big board, our team of insiders live to take on today's top stories. pepsi is shaking up its soda lineup bringing back crystal pepsi. the bigger change is that it's reintroducing the artificial sweetener aspartame in diet pepsi. dr. richard besser, i know you want to weigh in on this. first they take it out and now want to put it back in.
7:41 am
they say they took it out because of safety concerns. >> they were responding to consumer concerns about a possible link -- animal studies showing a possible link between aspartame and certain cancers. the fda looked at it and concluded that it's safe and other countries have concluded the same. there are some consumer groups, center for science and public interest, they've concluded that there could be a risk. if there's a risk, it's small and it comes with massive consumption of aspartame. >> and, rich, you know, when they took this off the market they were talking about the consumer concerns about safety but then after they take it off the market, consumers say they didn't like the change, sales fell 10%. now pepsi is going to offer two versions, one with aspartame and one with suk kra lows. how do you make sense of this? >> i think it says money talks. people said that they wanted it back in there. there aren't any new studies or there aren't many in the past year that change the conclusion on this. i'm not a big fan of sodas
7:42 am
whether it's sugar or diet. i'm a water drinker. if you're going to do it, do it in moderation. people with a medical condition called pku, they cannot consume aspartame. it's very dangerous for them. let's move on to a big change coming in the pageant world. miss teen usa announcing they are getting rid of the swimsuit competition. adjoining us is christina from us weekly. now they're going to have this athletic wear competition. what's behind the change? >> miss teen usa is trading bikinis for athleisure wear. this is the first time in 33 years that miss teen usa will not have a swimsuit competition and are shifting the focus to physical fitness which they hope encourages their young parts occupations ages 14 to 19. they said this is a reflection of the cultural shift and that they are celebrating women that lead physical and active lives. >> do you think other pageants are going to follow suit here? >> i definitely think so. i think this is a whole
7:43 am
rebranding for pageants. if you remember back in 2014 miss world banned swimsuit competitions, and pageants have been under a lot of scrutiny or objectifying women and for not promoting different body types and now with this shift it seems that they are embracing empowerment and equality. >> do you know what kind of outfits we're going to see exactly? >> yoga pants? >> any yoga pants, anything that makes you feel strong and empowered, i think that's pretty much what they're promoting and i think it's a great shift for them. >> thank you very much. i was a judge at the miss teen usa pageant in 1990. bridget wilson won, miss oregon, actress, married to pete sampras. i think we got it right. now to michael phelps making history once again. he won the men's 200 meter butterfly which means he'll become the first american man ever to swim in five olympics games. joining us is summer sanders,
7:44 am
former swimmer and yahoo! contributor. how excited are you? come on now, you can really appreciate the fact that he is going to his fifth olympic games. what does that say to you? >> absolutely amazing. i thought it was perfect. as soon as he composed himself and was swimming across the pool he put up his hand for number five. again, i felt really honored to witness this bit of history from michael phelps. it was far from a perfect race, his 200 butterfly. he said especially the last 25 meters was really tough, but he was one of the few veterans to touch the wall first in one of his signature races. what we have left from michael phelps, today is his birthday, the ripe old age of 31. he's going to swim. he has the prelims this morning, the semis tonight. the true test will be on saturday -- wait, on friday, when he gets to swim the 200 im final and the 100 fly. it will be his first double. we're all just excited to see michael phelps back at the li
